There is a lot to organize at the beginning of the school year, but the 2017-2018 brings an additional level of chaos with the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Here is a list of the most important forms to have updated in line with ESSA requirements, and available in a language that families can understand:
- Home Language Survey
- Immunization Notices
- Registration Form(s)
- English Learner Programs Placement
- Annual Parent Notice: Right to Request Teacher Qualifications
